I think you'll understand
The way I feel can't be helped
You owe them nothing

It's time to walk away
And leave this behind
Let go

I would treat you better
I would treat you better
I would treat you better
I'll treat you better

Hold on
Oh love

You can hold out
As long as you know
You are leaving
You are leaving

I would treat you better
I would treat you better
I would treat you better
I'll treat you better

Hold on
Oh my love

Song facts

"I like the interpretation that I'm admitting to and begging forgiveness for having betrayed a lover, but for me this is the offer of an extension of safety and protection to a person who's in a bad relationship either with family or a domineering lover. 'I know you're suffering now, but if you can wait until we get a window, I'll steal you away from this place and bring you to a better one.' This was the first song the band finished from the record, and it set a tone for the kind of warmth and physicality we decided to bring to the rest of the music." - Jana Hunter
